Sunday Brunch at Clinton St. Baking & Co.

Clinton Street Baking Co.
4 Clinton Street New York, NY 10002

Approximately two weeks ago, my boyfriend and I celebrated our friend's birthday by having a late brunch at Clinton Street Baking & Co. We picked probably not the best day as it was Father's Day, but somehow everything turned out to be okay and we were able to experience Clinton Street Baking Co. and the food.

Our friend Jack (birthday man) walked to the restaurant ahead of time and made a reservation and it was about a three hour wait and the restaurant texted him to alert him that our table would be ready. When we arrived we had to wait an additional 10 minutes for our table.

From the outside, Clinton St. Baking & Company doesn't look very impressive, but inside it has a homey-like look to it. Staff is friendly and prices are reasonable.

Iced Coffee
I started with an iced coffee. Perfect beverage especially since it was so hot and muggy inside. This was the perfect refreshing drink.

Without any hesitation we ordered the blueberry pancakes ($14.00).

Maine Blueberry Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter
I've never been a fan of pancakes, but when I had my first bite from the most fluffiest, moist pancake I was truly in pancake heaven. The pancake was soft and full of fluffiness.

There's a general helping of blueberries which tasted fresh and heavenly and powdered sugar sprinkled. I love how the blueberries was round, plump, and flavorful. Hand down, this was the best pancakes I've had so far.

Country Breakfast
My boyfriend ordered the Country Breakfast ($13.00) which consisted of three eggs (any style), Heritage maple cured ham, hash browns, and a buttermilk biscuit. 

Southern Breakfast
Someone else ordered the Eggs Benedict so I was unable to. I decided on the Southern Breakfast ($14.00). It consisted of two eggs (any style), sugar-cured bacon, cheese grits, and fried green tomatoes. I wasn't a fan of the sugar-cured bacon because it wasn't really what I expected it to be. Somehow I thought it would be sweet, but it wasn't.

The cheese grits was good and very filling. I never had fried green tomatoes before. I couldn't really taste the tomato-ness of the green tomato. I could only taste most of the breading.

Huevos Racheros
Birthday Man - Jack had the Huevos Rancheros ($14.00) which consisted of Sunny side-up eggs with red bean, guacomole, japaleno, sour cream, salsa picante, and pepper jack cheese on a flour tortilla.

Eggs Benedict
Birthday Man's cousin came along to brunch too. He ordered the Eggs Benedict ($15.00) before I could. He made an excellent choice. The Eggs Benedict consisted of: poached eggs with maple cured ham, classic hollandaise sauce over a toasted buttermilk biscuit. The poached eggs were plump and the whole dish just looked amazing. I wonder how did it taste.

The birthday brunch was a success. I really and truly enjoyed the blueberry pancakes. I'm really glad I was able to try it out and that our friend Jack had a good time. Will I come back here again? Most likely yes because service was good and the food was amazing.

Certain things in life are just worth the wait.


  1. The blueberry pancakes and eggs benedict look delicious! Glad to hear that your expectations have been met on this visit--there's nothing worse than having a lackluster meal after all your friends and the whole blogosphere has raved about it. Interesting presentation of huevos rancheros, don't think I've ever had it on a flour tortilla before.

    1. I loved our brunch at Clinton St. Baking & Co. I definitely want to go back soon, but I hope next time we will still get lucky.
